WoWDB is a World of Warcraft information database intended as an accessory to MMO-Champion and as a successor to its previous database, which was not "aging very well". It is currently in a "late alpha/early beta" state.[1]

On June 11, 2019, WoWDB was acquired by Magic Find along with MMO-Champion.[2]

Initial incarnation

Previously, WOWDB (capital o) was a similar database created by Curse. The site design was "very much inspired by Wowhead, with questions whether it was even a 'rip-off.'"[3] Sometime in late 2010, Curse decided to close WOWDB. In their closure message, they referred visitors to their guild site, Wowstead, MMO-Champion's WoW DB, and Wowtal.com, MMO-Champion's WoW Talent Calculator.
